Yes. SMP does not belong onto a bootdisk.

What utils do you need to modify for smp?

If you have a office you probably have a server there that could host an
archive with most packages needed for install.

But yes, this is how it works here. It works even better with a bootable CD
instead of a floppy. Boots *much* faster.


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
